Special Guest: Bowen Hobbs

The seven-game winning streak saw its end last night as the LumberKings fell behind 7-3 and ultimately lost 9-6 to the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers.  Mickey Wiswall, Blake Ochoa and Vinnie Catricala all homered in the losing cause for the Kings, who remain 1.5 games ahead of Beloit for the West Division Wild Card.

For tonight’s interview, I’ve decided to air and post a conversation I recorded recently with
bowenhobbsrattlerlogo.jpggraphic designer Bowen Hobbs.  You’ve probably seen his work if you follow the Midwest League, as Bowen was the artist who created the 2009 Midwest League All-Star Game logo when we hosted the event last season.  He also designed both logos for the LumberBlog.

In addition to those designs, Hobbs has also been working on creating new logos and uniform schemes for all kinds of professional teams.  He’s redesigned many of the logos of teams in our league, including tonight’s series opponent, the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (pictured). 

My personal favorite logo is the one he recently posted on the Erie SeaWolves.  For more of Bowen’s original designs and critiques of existing logos and uniforms, visit his blog at

New Year, New Look

LumberBlog3.jpgThe LumberBlog has a new logo for the 2010 season thanks to graphic artist Bowen Hobbs, the creator of both the original LumberBlog logo and the 2009 Midwest League All-Star Game logo.

What prompted the change?  Well, the entirety of is getting a facelift later this month and it was time to tweak the blog logo for image-sizing reasons.  The new site looks awesome and will be paying tribute to some of the recent Clinton stars to have reached the big leagues.

By the way, Bowen is also in the blogosphere with “44th and Goal”, a blog about graphic design in professional sports.  Check it out if you love talking about logos, uniforms, color schemes and the like.
